Memorable Manitobans: Herbert Joseph (1887-1965)


Born at London, England in 1887, he immigrated to Winnipeg in 1904 and worked as an architectural draftsman. He studied at the Winnipeg School of Art in 1913-1914 but enlisted in the engineering corps during World War One, returning to Winnipeg in 1919 with sketches of the devastation. He left Winnipeg in 1923, ending up in Chicago, but he continued to have local contacts that led, for example, to his illustrations for J. J. Gunn’s Echoes of the Red (1930).
